About the non-profit groups

The American Sign Museum (ASM) is the most comprehensive museum of its kind in the world, covering more than 100 years of history. In the past 20 years, the museum has grown its collection by 157%, its attendance by 105% and revenue by 91%. Although preserving the history of signs remains a primary focus, ASM has become a beacon in the Camp Washington community known for its support for visual artists, promotion of cultural vibrancy and collaboration with local universities and other organizations. ASM’s focus is currently on a $5.5 million building campaign that will double its size.

Caracole is Greater Cincinnati’s nonprofit devoted to positively changing lives in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Since 1987, Caracole’s programs have expanded from housing and case management for people living with HIV to include outreach, testing, education and harm reduction to help people reduce their risk for HIV. The work they do to end the HIV epidemic is central to a healthy community. In 2022, Caracole served more than 1,500 clients living with HIV and provided more than 1,700 free HIV tests in the Greater Cincinnati region.

Since 1993, Starfire Council of Greater Cincinnati has worked to create a more inclusive world by partnering with people with developmental disabilities, like Down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy, to help build richer, more fulfilling lives. The data is clear: people with disabilities grow increasingly lonely and isolated as adults. Starfire works to remove barriers and discover identities exclusive of disabilities to connect people to relationships based on shared interests that decrease social isolation via Starfire’s Community Building Network, Family Leadership Network, and Learning Network.
